The District released new designs for driver’s licenses and other identification cards last week (including a vertical layout for cards for people under 21, the better to keep them out of bars with). But the redesign (above) goes heavy on icons that mean a lot to tourists—like the cherry blossoms—and light on the stuff D.C. residents live and breathe every day—like traffic, people obsessed with their smartphones, Marion Barry, and go-go. So we re-redesigned the licenses to feature more local staples. Take a look.
